perspective stands in stark contrast to what university of texas researchers found. >> u.s., civilian nuclear power plant are not protected against attacks from the air. they are not protected against attacks from the sea. they are not protected against rocket-propelled grenades. they are not protected against 50 caliber sniper rifles using armored piercing ammunition. which those are are the greatest threat. >> the industry says its tests show containment vessels can sustain a direct impact from a boeing 767. that contradicts findings by the u.s. national laboratory which found it would breech the containment vessel. so, shep, it boils down to who do you trust? >> doug mckelway live in washington. the u.s. military now announcing new steps to crackdown on sexual assaults within its ranks. the pentagon now reports it will allow commanders to transfer troops who ho are suspected of sex crimes to cut down on contact with their victims. this will also create a new program to provide legal representation to the victims and allow victims to have a say during the sentencing phase of a court martial

"liberals want to bronco bust dissent, but texans value speech, even if it is speech they don't agree with." no one is calling for the the rodeo clown to go to jail but nobody is inviting someone who is decidedly -- i mean this is a decidedly like racially loaded move to wear a mask of the president and invite yourself to be run over by a bull. right? >> first of all, i am a texan and it is true that we appreciate free speech in texas. however, we also appreciate our rodeos and i have been to a fair number of rodeos and never in my life have i seen a racialized clown act. >> a minstrel show. >> an actual minstrel show that involves bulls and barrels and broncos. i mean it is unbelievable. it is, in fact, just one of many ways that this president has suffered sort of almost unprecedented levels of disrespect both for himself as a person but also for the office itself. and certainly, as jonathan said earlier, vote

foundation defund obama care event in texas, senator ted cruz tried to rally conservatives. >> what happens next is president obama and harry reid are going to scream and yell those mean, nasty republicans are threatening to shut down the federal government. what has to happen after that is we've got to do something that conservatives haven't done in a long time. we've got to stand up and win the argument. why is it that every reporter in the media and a significant percentage of republicans assume with an impasse that president obama will never, ever, ever give up his principals so republicans have to give up theirs. if you have an impasse, you want to know one side or the other has to blink. how do we win this fight? don't blink! >> by the way, cruz was heckled at that event by people saying they wanted health care as well, but there were more supporters, as he said, than there were hecklers. earlier, though, former u.s. senator jim demint and president of the heritage foundation said any congressional republicans who oppose their effort should be replaced. the debate over how to defeat t

it to bob smith who lives in texas and is reported to be an anti-government guy. the interview him and he says i am a loyal american. i'd just like my guns. i would never do anything bad. they closed the investigation and the police say you might want to keep your eye on him because he has a lot of guns. do you think people in the congress might have a problem with that? so we have to realize that we could increase the safety net that we have but it has implications for what the state and local authorities do and how that potentially and hinges upon the civil liberties and how we want to live our life independent of the officials investigations. >> i would completely agree with mike on this and the problem as the observations are made that we have the advantage of hindsight and i think that one lesson is our collection capabilities the way that we are able to collect information has increasing so that almost inevitably when something happens when we had something like a boston marathon attack we are going to be able to look back and find points of opportunity where we had an opportunity t
